Ribosome

c.

Chloroplast

d.

Cell wall

Answer

Question

The structure, which is present only in plant cells

Choices

Choice (4) Response
a.

Nucleus and cell membrane

b.

Cell wall and chloroplast

c.

Cell wall and cytoplasm

d.

Cell membrane and cytoplasm

Answer

b.

Explanation

The cell is the structural and functional unit of the body. Plant cells may differ from other cells in different aspects like chloroplast and a cell wall is present in plant cells. A cell wall made up of cellulose and hemicellulose, and pectin is secreted by the protoplast on the outside of the cell membrane and chloroplast contains chlorophyll, which absorbs sunlight for photosynthesis process.
